Marshalls Central Laboratory at Brookfoot Works in Halifax will soon be taking delivery of a new Weiss Walk-in Test Room.
Increased demand and production of the Marshalls range of hydraulically wet pressed and semi-dry concrete products now requires a larger throughput of batch testing. Existing test facilities consisting of three Weiss Temperature Test Chambers are to be replaced by the new room. The new temperature-controlled room will just short of, quadruple the test capacity for the Marshalls Laboratory whilst also giving more scope for R&D.
Chris Wilson, Central Laboratory Manager at Marshalls, visited the Weiss Technik UK, Ebbw Vale plant for factory acceptance testing of the new room, hosted by Frazer North, Area Sales Manager, Weiss Technik UK and Chris Davies, Test Engineer, Weiss Technik UK.
Testing of Marshall’s products is a continuous 28 day process and consists of a constant freeze/thaw cycles between -43°C to +50°C. The room features a remote weatherproof refrigeration plant and is also supplied with six tier, stainless steel racking allowing samples of up to 455kg to be tested.
